Highway 59 resurfacing project to start April 13


The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) will begin a routine maintenance resurfacing project on a portion of State Highway 59 in Baldwin County beginning Monday, April 13.

The scope of the project includes resurfacing, striping and performing guardrail replacement on 5.2 miles of State Highway 59 from the Intracoastal Waterway Bridge to the junction of County Road 12 in Foley.

Resurfacing is expected to take approximately 60 days to complete. Weekday, alternating lane closures are expected between 7 a.m. till 5 p.m. while traffic volumes remain relatively low. When traffic volumes return to their normal levels, any remaining construction activities requiring lane closures will switch to night operations.

The $2.9 million-dollar project, awarded to Mobile Asphalt Company, LLC, is expected to be complete early fall 2020.
